[$] An update on the input stack

Post Syndicated from jake original https://lwn.net/Articles/801767/rss

The input stack for Linux is an essential part of interacting with our
systems, but it is also an area that is lacking in terms of developers.
There has been progress over the last few years, however; Peter Hutterer
from Red Hat came to the 2019 X.Org
Developers Conference to talk about some
of the work that has been done. He gave a status report on the input
stack that covered development work that is going on now as well as things
that have been completed in the last two years or so. Overall, things are
looking pretty good for input on Linux, though the “bus factor” for the
stack is alarmingly low.
